  • All-new MacBook Air takes flight

Typing isn't the spongy experience it has been on the MacBook Air previously and only you'll know whether you like that or not. In another addition, there are now two Thunderbolt 3 ports which allow will users to charge their laptops and quickly transfer data via USB. Not only is it created to prevent MacBook Air users from getting malware but it also makes it physically impossible for hackers to access your microphone when you're most vulnerable.

What is the MacBook Air?

They all share a design that competitors are still emulating years later - and only recently have done well. It can be ordered today, October 30, and will be available next week, November 7.

Who is the target audience for the MacBook Air?

The new model delivers what many people were asking for back in the day - a Retina display - but is it any good? In fact, Apple claims it has 50% narrower bezels.

After months and months and months of rumours and speculation, Apple has finally announced a new MacBook Air to replace the absolutely ancient MacBook Air. It weighs 2.75 pounds (1.24kg). It's been so long since the MacBook Air has had an update that pretty much everything has been refreshed in one way or another. Aluminium gives strength and durability to the new Mackbook Air, which is made from 100% recycled aluminium. Of course, the ports on offer and the display were in dire need of an update. There are three thunderbolt ports in the new MacBook Air.

11 killed in US synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh Photogallery
The Islamic Center Of Pittsburgh offered its deepest sympathy and condolences, and called on its community to donate blood. Around the time, three congregations amounting to about 100 people would have been using the building, Mr Eisenberg said.

There is also a 720p FaceTime HD camera on top of the display, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

This MacBook Air is the most environmentally friendly Mac on the market, Lagrove said: The logic board is made from 100% recycled tin, while the internal components are made from 25% post-consumer recycled plastic. Unfortunately, you don't get a touch display like the Surface Pro, there's no Touch Bar either but at least you get Apple's TouchID fingerprint scanner as well as support for Siri.

What is the battery size of the MacBook Air?

All told, it's a better design in terms of portability, but it doesn't leave much room for power similar to that of what the MacBook Air held against contemporaries of the time.

The MacBook Air has 4x the resolution of the previous version, for over 4 million pixels and 48% more color, so images are more lifelike, Lagrove said. And, if you're the type to simply write papers and read emails on a laptop, the display is completely passable.

Tesla faces "deepening criminal investigation" into Model 3 production
The company's shares settled after the markets opened but were still up by about 6% the next morning. Tesla has reported a quarterly profit for just the third time in its 15-year history.

That most recent previous model started at $999 for a 13-inch machine, and $1,199 for a 15-inch. It nearly seems assured that we won't see run times hit double digits.

What are the specifications of the MacBook Air?


There is an eighth-generation Intel Core processor under the hood. SSDs are up to 1.5TB in capacity and 60% faster than the previous model.

Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled a new MacBook Air at its "There's More in the Making" media event in NY on Tuesday.
